Fabulous house, in a quiet location, perfect if you want to stay in or get out for a walk. Loads of room, great for friends or family trip away. Know one gets short changed on the bedroom front. Amazing gardens for kids or big kids for that matter.

It is a great house, with all the comforts of 6 bedrooms and 4 bathrooms. The conservatory and the lovely large garden deserve special mention. And don't forget the large kitchen, where everything can be found for optimal cooking and baking. Icklesham and the surrounding area are lovely, and the nearby medieval town of Rye is well worth a visit.

We had the time of our lives! The house is delightful. It's extremely well kitted out and very cosy and comfortable - we loved sitting around the fire and having dinner in the dining room. The bedrooms are spacious with comfy beds and bedding. The location is perfect and there's a great pub within walking distance. Sheila, the manager, was extremelRead morey helpful whenever I contacted her with some (minor) questions about the property. The pool table went down well too! Hide

Ideal place for a large group, lots of space - lofty rooms but warm and comfortable. Open fire needs to have kindling and dry logs for winter guests. 1066 Walk on doorstep is brilliant route to Winchelsea.

The Old Vicarage is a lovely, large, comfortable, and relatively secluded property with plenty of outdoor spaces for all age-groups. The location enabled us to go to Winchelsea, Battle Abbey, Hastings, Brighton, and two coastal cycle rides.

We had a lovely time at the Old Vicarage. The kitchen is very well equipped, the conservatory a real sun trap and the sofas very comfortable. The children (ages from 8 to 16) had lots to keep them them occupied. They loved the garden and theres a playground within a short walk. Only one shower other than the en-suite on 1st floor was a struggle at Read moretimes but otherwise all round excellent. Hide
